    Have you ever been given a bonus present when you won a jackpot? I haven't, my husband has.

    From Barbary Coast, he was given a really nice suede jacket. It is well made, has lots of pockets and is still hanging unworn in the closet. This was for a Royal.

    From Flamingo, he got a nice quality sweat shirt with a big green shamrock on it. It was right near St. Patrick's day. Again it was never worn but donated to charity immediately. And again for a royal.

    From Caesars, he was given a really nice navy fleece vest. Lots of pockets and the label is discreet. He wears this all the time and it's ready to fall apart. Wish he could win another one of these. That was for a Super Times Pay royal so a repeat of that jackpot would be sweet.

    Never in Vegas, but in Aruba I got a t-shirt that proclaimed I'd hit a a royal at the Radisson Casino.

    I hit a straight flush playing three card poker at Bally's once and they gave me a Superbowl T-shirt they had left from some promotion. La-dee-dah... I was betting two blacks on every circle and playing blind. I think I gave it away to somebody on the Boulevard.

    It's my understanding that they still do this downtown at El Cortez with a $200 jackpot.

    Never in Las Vegas, but I was given a great wind breaker at Foxwoods for getting a Royal while playing poker. I lost the jacket when my suitcase went missing from the bell desk storage at the Riviera.

    I got an IP hoodie when I hit a royal years ago. Still wear it when out walking.

    One a Royal Caribbean t-shirt after winning a slot tourney. Hubby still wears that.

    Yikes....the Bell Desk lost your suitcase? Hope you were compensated. I always make sure I remove my passport or anything vital before storing my luggage for fear my luggage would go missing.

    I think he got one of those t-shirts for the royal on the $1 coin dropper. Do they give them for .25 royals too.

    I was compensated. The only thing that wasn't dirty laundry was the jacket. I was told that security had tracked the missing case to Ohio, but it was never recovered. I received a cheque covering the value of the clothing about two months later.

    Had a couple of jackets from Orleans, and a polo shirt and baseball cap from LV Hilton, all for getting a RF at 25c level

    Jackpots are so rare to me I am so happy when it does hit that I don't need anything else.

    Since you've mentioned this, I'm ashamed to admit that I've washed and folded this shirt many times. I must not be putting heart and soul into the laundry.

    I was offered a Red Leather Racing Jacket from The Beau Rivage but I turned it down
    because I wasn't about to let them plaster my face of their huge Marquee outside. No Way!

    Julie, I think they only do them at certain times, I,m just back and got another jacket (funnily enough it was a Gold Coast jacket?? for hitting a $1600 jackpot) and the ticket said "jackets for jackpots 1st-23rd January, I may have the dates wrong slightly, but did notice that it was for about 3 weeks only.
